So today I show you how to make a Christmas card with stamps in the way of it.

At first I made a stamp with a small piece of eraser. I drew a design of simple flowers.

Then I scratched it on a piece of eraser, the rest of my works.

I began carving from the outlines. Note the angle of the knife.
It should be in a trapezoidal shape when you see it from the side. It makes the stamps durable.
